Specifying connection parameters

This step of the wizard provides you with major set of options needed to register a server.


Setting connection parameters



Server Name

Use this field to select server to register. You can select host from the drop-down list or type in a host name manually.

Please note that if Microsoft® SQL Server™ is installed as a named instance, you should enter the name of your machine and the instance name in the Server name field in the following format: computer_name\sqlserver_instance_name (e.g. "MYCOMPUTER\SQLEXPRESS").
